Black Panther’s cast just keeps getting bigger and more interesting. Letitia Wright who has appeared in Doctor Who and Humans, has now joined the cast of this movie as the character Shuri.
Shuri in the comics
Shuri is the younger sister of T’Challa, and is part of the Wakandan Royal Family. The character has only been around since 2005, but has grown in popularity, where she even takes up the Black Panther mantle. She most likely isn’t going to do that in this movie, but after Infinity War anything is possible.
Wright is a Guyanese born British actress, who joins an already impressive cast. She’s also going to be in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Ready Player One.
Black Panther releases February 16, 2018, and is directed by Ryan Coogler.
